Is late April/early May a bad time to hike in Norhtern Spain due to too much rain?

We are considering a one week trip to northern Spain including at least 2 days hiking and photographing in the Picos de Europa region. One of us is an expert hiker and the other is a beginner. However, the concern is about the weather. The plan is to go late April/early May however, we do not fancy hiking in the rain. Is this timeframe a bad idea?

It depends what you mean by too much rain, but you're probably going to get wet at some point - it's likely to rain in Asturias at any time of the year. Average rainfall in April is 48mm (1.9 inches), in May it's 41mm (1.6 inches).

As long as you're sensibly dressed, though, rain shouldn't dampen your spirits too much.

It will probably rain and there will be snow either falling or on the ground especially in the higher regions. So be prepared. It won't rain all the time it will be in spring showers. The Picos are great and the local food is filling. Fabada...yuuum. Enjoy.
